disregarding a flood of lastmin ute criticism Thursday passed a sharplymodified version of Pres ident Kennedys tax reform bill The roll call vote was 59 to 24 in favor of the bill Avith an un usual combination of liberals and conservatives casting most the opposition votes The measure near the top of Kennedys list of priority legisla tion was sent back to the House amid a drumfire of criticism
